A patrician residence at San Stae, Palazzo Mocenigo houses valuable 18th century artworks and is also home to the Study Centre for the History of Textiles and Costumes. A fine selection of rare textiles and costumes of particular importance are displayed. The collection is laid out with a significant importance given to garments and accessories. Mainly of Venetian origin, the works are often embellished with lace and embroidery, skills of several artisans who made such a contribution to that refined luxury and elegance for which the Venetians of those days were famous for.

This is a good place to visit to experience how the Italian aristocracy lived and view a small but grand house. The costume display is very limited so wouldn’t advise if that is your main purpose. The perfume exhibition and interactive displays are however interesting...More

Palazzo Mocenigo is a museum that showcases Venetian lifestyles from the 17th and 18th centuries. There are the architecture, decor and furnishings in their original settings or moved from similar surroundings. There is an area that shows how perfumes were made in the past, one...More

This is something of a hidden gem, looking quite inconspicuous. As you enter the rooms, however, it is a delightful surprise. The rooms of the grand house are much as they would have been in the 17th and 18th centuries, all red plush and chandeliers,...More

It is not the most exciting museum, but if you have the City Pass to Venice (VeneziaUnica) it is free of charge. At the moment there is an exhibition on perfumes and flacons besides some of the usual dresses

This shows the life of nobility in Venice in very well. No religious artifacts and art work, but really practical stuff that is worth viewing. A large section is all anout the perfiume industry in Venice which is really interseting.

We were taking a stroll when we came across Palazzo Mocenigo. We had a quick look, but decided against going inside for a visit, not our cup of tea....

I doubt that many tourists put this museum on their list when visiting Venice, but if you're staying a bit longer, do, because you won't regret it. We took the long walk from the Fish Market and that in itself, was a JOY! You'll get...More

It is supposed to be about perfume and the making of perfume. Lots of displays of spices, etc that make perfume, a distillery, and pretty bottles- with that said, it's a creepy place- all the walls covered in red thick wallpaper, subliminal hyper sexual tones...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
